HEROES & VILLAINS, a selection of works from the collection, explores the archetypes of good and bad characters, and the middle ground between them. While some heroes and villains are easily identifiable through certain recognisable traits, it is often the case that these categories are not so self-contained. Depending on the contexts of time and place, someone who is once celebrated as a hero may be transformed into a villain, or vice versa. Indeed, these shifting contexts can act as formative influences, with artists and writers alike recognising the power of settings and scenarios on the decisions we make.
